Pipe Screams Press to Release ‘Twisted: Tainted Tales’ by Janine Pipe



Pipe Screams Press to Release 'Twisted: Tainted Tales' by Janine Pipe

An abandoned house. A locked desk drawer full of old papers. And… An 80s mixtape?!

Good news for those of us who dig creepy reads! “Twisted: Tainted Tales,” the debut short story collection by author Janine Pipe is due to be released May 1st, 2021.

The collection will be released through the author’s own independent Pipe Screams Press. If there’s anything cooler than tales of the macabre, it’s independent press!

Seventeen tales of terror promise to chill and thrill in this debut collection. And get this… 13 of the tales are named after some of your favorite 80s pop hits! It’s been proven time and time again that we horror fans really dig the 80s, right? And when you mix that decade with short stories, well, you’re aiming right for our hearts. What if your favorite anthology horror was a BOOK?! What if Creepshow was published as a paperback?! I’m excited to get my hands on this one, folks.

With stories titled “Maneater,” “Sweet Child O’ Mine,” “Tainted Love,” Pipe is already laying the groundwork to pull us in. And what more can you ask of a horror author? Because the more we lean in, as a reader, the more the scare can blow our pants off!

Don’t take my word for it, take a look at some of these blurbs:
